US media: "Russian trolls" announced the relocation of US nuclear weapons from Turkey to Lithuania

31

Russia's efforts to undermine NATO’s reputation in Lithuania are much wider than previously thought, Defense One writes.


The publication cites the “October rumor” allegedly circulated by Russians about the alleged displacement of American nuclear weapons from Turkey to Lithuania as an attempt to sow public divisions and weaken NATO’s public support in the republic.

The attacking trolls even made a fake tweet on behalf of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo with "congratulations" addressed to the Lithuanian president in connection with the news the relocation of nuclear weapons, even though American politicians never reveal their location outside the United States.

- noted in the text.

Defense One writes that this “attack of the Russian trolls” had several goals. In part, it aims to exacerbate friction between the United States and Turkey over the fighting in Ankara in Syria. Partly the target of this activity, the publication believes, is the real US plans to deploy a tank battalion in Lithuania to contain the Russian Federation.

According to Eugenijus Lastauskas, head of the Strategic Communications Department of the Ministry of Defense of Lithuania, the purpose of what happened was to convince the citizens of the country that they would be the target for a retaliatory nuclear strike by Russia if real hostilities begin between Russia and NATO.

      These are the worst athletes for NATO. More terrible than the army.

        Key phrase:
        American politicians never reveal his location outside the United States

        In other words, no treaty limits the United States in locating nuclear weapons anywhere in how many acceptable quantities. All the same, after all, they will not tell anyone, which means that there will be no countdown under the agreements.

          Now imagine that the source of the OBS is the GRU, and the instruction to give a move to this rumor came from the very top ...
          So, you can go further :: indicate the location of the air base on which these nuclear warheads are stored ...
          We move on: every iron in Lithuania mentions Redzikovo in Poland, where the Patriots of the United States will be based, more than once a day, but all this is accompanied by the Russian opinion that this place will be glazed in Poland, and the rest can remain unharmed.
          And how do you think, with what degree of panic and discontent will ordinary Lithuanians react to the deployment of NATO units on Lithuanian territory, KNOWING that they also have nuclear warheads stored at their side, because of which their village (village, town ... ) will also be subject to vitrification ??
          Exactly ... this is a cyber war, kids, you will not see Russians in this war - everything will happen very quickly ...

    about the alleged transfer of American nuclear weapons from Turkey to Lithuania as an attempt to sow public divisions and weaken NATO’s public support in the republic.

    Oh how.
    That is, the Lithuanian NATO fans do not want to show the notorious NATO solidarity, believing that "let all sorts of Turks and Germans be under threat"?

    He would have one more understand, namely, that in the event of a war with NATO, Lithuania would rake at least that way, at least that way.

        Because it poses a threat to the Kaliningrad enclave. And in secret: Ukraine will also receive its own; the enemy is not left behind.

          There will be enough and conventional weapons, in the worst case, tactical SBS (do not forget about radioactive fallout). What's the point in protecting your territories by turning them into a radioactive desert? This is only in the case of a guaranteed loss of these territories according to the principle: "So don't get it to anyone!"

    Eugenijus Lastauskas probably thinks that the citizens of his country are so stupid that they need to be convinced that in the event of the outbreak of war, Lithuania and other NATO countries may receive a full paragraph. Well, if common truths reach them with a delay of several years, then of course it is the "Russian trolls" who decided to help them think faster.
